The names of demons (pagan gods) and the demonic saturate American life. One suspects the average American speaks the names of demons several times per day. Where are all of these demons? Hiding in plain sight. A quick guide to where everyday demons are to be found in the United States of America.
MAINSTREAMING THE DEMONIC
IF one lives in the United States, one lives in a land saturated with the presence of demons and the demonic. So many everyday items are named after demons, Americans should feel like they are on a first-name basis with God’s enemies.
While it will be hard to name them all, we’ll attempt to run down many everyday things in American life which are named or representative of the demonic.
PAGAN GODS ARE DEMONS
“No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God.”
—1 Corinthians 10:20
“They sacrificed to demons, not to God, To gods they did not know, To new gods, new arrivals That your fathers did not fear.”
The Bible tells us that pagan gods are really demons.
And pagan gods are EVERYWHERE one looks in the U.S. of A.
1- A VERY SMALL partial list of commercially-available products and/or companies named after pagan gods or goddesses.
- Hermes- Hermes bags/purses. Hermes is also the logo of FTD flowers and Goodyear tires.
- Atlas- Atlas, a book of maps; also Atlas Van Lines, a moving company; many different companies/products named after Atlas.
- Apollo- a car manufactured by Buick; also the Apollo Theater in NYC and also the Apollo Space Program
- Echo- a car manufactured by Toyota.
- Eos- a convertible manufactured by Volkswagen
- Orion- Orion Pictures Corporation
- Nike- a shoe company
- Saturn – a brand of car; an award
- Titan – insurance company; outdoor advertising company; an ocean liner; a movie
2 – All of the planets (except earth) and many of the astronomical objects
3- Most of the winter storms named by the US Weather Service are named after pagan gods and goddesses or other figures from pagan mythology. Here’s the list from 2013.
In 2014-15, over half (15 of 26) of the names of winter storms were taken from pagan mythology.
Many other everyday names of products/companies come from pagan mythology, including Aurora, Amazon and Ajax–and that’s just in the “A’s.”
Christians aren’t even supposed to SPEAK the names of pagan gods (demons).
“And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.”
And yet most of the days of the week and almost half of the months come from pagan mythology.
4- Fairies, elves, brownies, gnomes and trolls: all have roots as popular folklore depictions of demons. ALL such mythological creatures originated as a type of spirit feared by humans.
Much of the folklore about fairies revolves around protection from their malice. Although in modern culture they are often depicted as young, sometimes winged, humanoids of small stature, they originally were depicted quite differently: tall, radiant, angelic beings or short, wizened trolls being two of the commonly mentioned forms.
Fairies are generally described as human in appearance and having magical powers. Their origins are less clear in the folklore, being variously dead, or some form of demon, or a species completely independent of humans or angels.
Modern media has worked overtime to alter the image of fairies in the American mind (think “Tinker Bell”). Modern entertainment has also labored to soften the image Americans have of elves and other demonic depictions from folklore.
Santa Claus is supposedly an elf.
Then there are those stories about the tooth fairy.
“When you think about it, the tooth fairy is definitely the creepiest lie we tell our kids, right?”
–Late night comedian, Jimmy Kimmel
5- Ghosts and the paranormal.
There are no “ghosts.” There are demons seeking to deceive humans.
EVERYDAY DEMONS: ONLY A START
The preceding is not an exhaustive list: it is only meant as a guide. The everyday products, companies, scientific terms, etc. named for demons/pagan gods is everywhere. American life is saturated with the demonic.
In movies, in commercials, on TV, in song lyrics: the names of demons are on the lips of the people–and we haven’t even talked about the names of high school, college and professional sports teams.
Demons are the enemies of God.
Some other forms of the demonic which God condemns.
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”
Any reader not familiar with what any of the above terms mean (enchanter, observer of times, wizard, consulter with familiar spirits, etc.)?
A quick 5-minute trip to any search engine will quickly acquaint the reader with the definitions and their modern-day equivalents. ALL involve consulting with the enemies of God–which is why the Bible labels them all “abominations.”
All of these repeated, nonchalant references to demons fits in well with what the Bible tells us about the end times (those times in which we now find ourselves).
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils [demons], and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:”
And if the term “they should not worship demons” seems farfetched, the reader need only ask himself if there aren’t plenty of Americans who worship various sports teams. “Sports fan” is short for “sports fanatic.”
There are many, many other examples available (which time and space do not permit their listing). This subject may be revisited in a future article and these lists added to.
“I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.
—1 Corinthians 10:20-21
